with the families who were lost on that day. i visited the graves of troops who made the ultimate sacrifice in iraq and afghanistan at the hallowed grounds of arlington cemetery and had the opportunity to say thank you and visit some of our wounded warriors at walter reed. and then last night, we learned the news of this attack in benghazi. as americans, let us never, ever forget that our freedom is only sustained because our people who are willing to fight for it. to stand up for it. and in some cases, lay down their lives for it. our country is only as strong as the character of our people. and the service of those both civilian and military who represent us around the globe. no acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation. alter that character or eclipse the light of the values we stand for. today we mourn for more americans who represent the very best of the united states of america. we will not waiver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. and make no mistake, justice will be done. but we also know that the lives these americans led stand in sta

be erased with the heating up of rhetoric. >> we got a report out talking about iraq's supplies, much greater than people anticipated. we're seeing more supply not just here in the u.s. what impact is that having on the price? >> obviously it's driven us down from those highs that we saw, which were pushed up by geopolitical tensions. we know that saudi arabia can produce and said they would produce in case of an emergency. so the market looks lake a well-supplied market at the moment, but that's because no when's focus on supply fears right now. they're focusing on the demand fears. that can change on a dime. >> looking at the price right now, just above $90 a barrel, where are you seeing prices for today? >> i think we continue to go up, people are going to look at that and continue to watch those demand numbers. and of course geopolitical -- we're going to move around. this is a volatile market and we've seen it. >> there you have it from ray carbone. i'll second it back to you. >> thank you very much, sharon. meanwhile, the debate in retail has for many years now been will the web

to the drawdown, what's happening in afghanistan and iraq or more broadly early fiscal cliff, signs there. business investment up just 1.1% after declining really for two straight months. john says these numbers stink. he says these orders data are putrid. we believe that weakness is tied to problems in asia and europe as well as uncertainty over the tax environment for 2013. and then we turn to the other side, the better claims data. now, notice it moves it just a little bit, but along with more optimism in the jobs component, the claims data is the second piece of good news this week on the employment front. weekly claims falling by 26,000 to the lowest level since late july. got to have a little caution here, comes on the heels of a bump up in claims from hurricane isaac and, of course, other factors that are out there. something for candidates romney and obama in today's data. you can imagine romney pounding on the weak growth and obama saying hey, 286,000 more jobs out there and there's also something for bulls and bears but not much anybody from a sober analysis this remains a weak

for the next four years. better off than four years ago. out of iraq. somebody with a pre-existing condition can get health insurance and in our state of illinois our automotive industry is really going strong. you know, chrysler had 200 jobs in january of 2009 when i became governor and when the president became president. it has 4,500 jobs in belvidere, illinois today, so the president knows how to get the economy moving forward, and we'll hear a lot about that tonight. >> governor quinn, there's still a huge public deficit. obviously people are very worried about the death, the debt-to-gdp ratio, 7%, 8% is the largest of the major economies in the world at the moment. at some point presumably the president has to talk about pain, shared pain for everybody to reduce that deficit, because the figures can't simply be closed by saying, okay, we're in the going to extend the bush tax cuts for the rich. that isn't enough money anymore near, it is it? >> well, we need economic growth. i think the president's plan is the best plan. we want to rebuild our infrastructure, our highways, our roads, o

the war on terror. after returning from iraq, he founded the mission continues. thank you for being here. >> it's great to be here. great to ring the opening bell this morning on behalf of all of the veterans who served in this generation. to let everybody know we're moving forward. >> everybody's sharing memories of that day, even 11 years later, you want to share yours? >> you know, for me, on september 11th, 2001, i was in the navy s.e.a.l. training, we had come out of a 2-mile ocean swim and as we were running up the beach, somebody ran down and told us that planes had hit the twin towers in new york. and we knew that day our whole world had changed and a class of navy s.e.a.l.s was going to war. >> it wasn't an impetus for you to enlist, you were already going. but it must have stiffened your resolve. >> it stiffened my resolve, the resolve of navy s.e.a.l.s and people throughout the military who knew what we had been called on to do, the time was now. >> and talk about the mission continues. the mission is essentially to give post 9/11 veterans a way to either find a full-time job,
